    Paleo or not?

    I just made a shake with vanilla almond milk, banana , blackberries, strawberries and cinnamon... Is this a good Paleo snack?

    Most of the flavored almond milks have loads of sugar/other additives. try coconut milk or just plain H2O. I would also try to avoid snacking and eat more at regular meals.

    If you are hungry, eat something that has a good amount of protein, and some complex carbs from veggies. Ex: can of tuna and some bell peppers/carrots, or beef jerkey.

    That is 3 days worth of fruit for me in that smoothie. You can buy unsweetened almond milk, or make your own from blanched almonds and water.

    Vanilla almond milk = processed sugar + additives + chemicals...
    Try coconut milk, water or if you consume dairy try what we drink, grass-fed whole milk... Preferably raw or at least unhomogenized...

    yeah, that's a high calorie, high sugar drink. given, it has some vitamin c and antioxidants, but it's really not a great idea to fuel yourself like this.

    i also don't like the idea of snacking too much, but that's just me.

    Well, to answer your question, no it most definitely is not Paleo.

    If you substituted coconut milk and added some protein powder, it would be a good choice before and after a workout.

    Protein powder is processed, and therefore, not paleo. It's also not a good idea to consume a lot of fat pre or post workout.
